    The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit is a hilarious (though not scientifically tested) wink at the time-honored mysteries of parenting. For anybody who has ever had a kid or has ever known one, knows that the experience is neither fun nor profitable - so, you might as well laugh!

    Overall

    Having listened to other SPQ audiobooks, I can safely say that the Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit was on par with the rest. Jill Conner-Brown never fails to entertain me. An excellent blend of humor, entertainment, and advice; her material is relevant and witty. Her voice also adds to the material with it's soothing southern lilt. The recipes are actually quite good, to boot.

    On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein, a girl at the periphery of schoolyard games and her distracted parents' attention, bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the cake. She discovers this gift to her horror, for her mother - her cheerful, good-with-crafts, can-do mother - tastes of despair and desperation.

    Overall

    It dragged. And dragged. And dragged. I think the story line was unique, but there was nothing there to capture me, nothing that made me want to keep listening. Add with that the reader's bland, intonation-less, and grating voice, and I simply couldn't finish.
